Victim's son calls on Trump to raise UK poisoning with Putin

A BRITISH man exposed to Novichok, four months after the same nerve agent was used against a former Russian spy nearby, had found it in a perfume bottle, his brother said.

Matthew Rowley's claim that Sturgess and his brother had been poisoned after unwittingly picking up the perfume bottle around Salisbury supports the theory that the couple were collateral damage from the assassination attempt on the Skripals.

The results may help inform the process to establish conclusively whether the novichok was from the same batch that was used in Salisbury to poison former Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

The poisoning of former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia in Salisbury (UK) has organized a group of six people headed by a woman from the Russian military intelligence.

The search for evidence in Salisbury has now moved to Queen Elizabeth gardens in Salisbury, which has been cordoned off since Ms Sturgess and Mr Rowley were admitted to hospital. Rowley is still hospitalized, but has regained consciousness.

The report comes ahead of an inquest into the death of Dawn Sturgess, 44, earlier this month.


What did the brother say?

Rowley remains seriously ill in hospital but his brother has told the BBC that the 45-year-old fell ill after picking up a discarded perfume bottle.

On this edition said the brother of the second victim of poisoning by Newcomer Charlie Rowley Matthew. "I think that the whole world will condemn it with us". "I think he is going a bit stir insane in hospital but I spoke to a doctor and he said Charlie is being monitored 24/7 and nothing can happen to him".

Police said last week they had found traces of the nerve agent in a small bottle in the Amesbury home of Mr Rowley. Authorities have confiscated more than 400 items in total from Rowley's home and other sites the couple may have visited leading up to their symptoms. "Who are they?" he said.

The UK has invited experts from the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to independently confirm the identity of the nerve agent.
